Issue of Hijama wages & Hijama while Fasting

The issue of Hijama wages & Hijama while Fasting, like there is a hadith which says that the fast will be broken if hijama is done & a hadith quotes that Prophet S.A.W.W Him Self had hijama done while fasting & in Ihraam. Similarly both Hadiths are found about Hijama wages. The following Hadith says that Prophet Him self gave wage for it. This issue is solved by Ulma's that this controversy is because that at a time it was prohibited but after some time these action of Prophet S.A.W.W shows that there is no issue for its wages (Allah knows well). 


Narated By Anas : That he was asked about the wages of the one who cups others. He said, 'Allah's Apostle was cupped by Abd Taiba, to whom he gave two Sa of food and interceded for him with his masters who consequently reduced what they used to charge him daily. Then the Prophet s said, "The best medicines you may treat yourselves with are cupping and sea incense.' He added, "You should not torture your children by treating tonsillitis by pressing the tonsils or the palate with the finger, but use incense." Bukhari 5304

Narrated Aun bin Abu Juhaifa: I saw my father buying a slave whose profession was cupping, and ordered that his instruments (of cupping) be broken. I asked him the reason for doing so. He replied, “Allah’s Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) prohibited taking money for blood, the price of a dog, and the earnings of a slave-girl by prostitution; he (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) cursed her who tattoos and her who gets tattooed, the eater of Riba (usury) and also the one who gives it and the maker of pictures.” [The Book of Sales: Sahih Bukhari]

The report narrated by al-Bukhaaree (2103) from Ibn ‘Abbaas y who said, "The Messenger r was cupped and he gave something to the one who treated him. If it had been forbidden, he would not have given him anything." This is the wording of al-Bukhaaree. He also narrated another version (2279) which says: "And he gave the cupper his wages; if he knew that it was disliked, he would not have given him anything."


It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) said: 'The cupper and the one for whom cupping is done both break their fast." (Ibn Majah 1679)

It was narrated  that Ibn 'Abbas said: " The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) had cupping done when he was fasting and in Ihram."  (Ibn Majah 1682)

These narrations seem contradictory but Imam Nawawi said, "The scholars have differed over the earnings of the cupper. Most of them from the early and present generations are in the opinion that it is not forbidden… this is what is well known from the madhab of Ahmed…" [Shahr Saheeh Muslim 10/233].
